Fellowship program information

The University of Manitoba, Department of Surgery, is pleased to offer one (1) fellowship position in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery per academic year. The fellow will gain expertise in a variety of laparoscopic procedures during this one-year clinical fellowship. These will include: laparoscopic hernia, solid organ, foregut, and colorectal procedures. The fellow may also choose a stream of more extensive experience in bariatric surgery (gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, revisional surgery). Fellows will work with six dedicated MIS surgeons at 3 sites in Winnipeg. Fellows will attend ambulatory clinics weekly and there will be a mandatory research component to the program. Current research in surgical education, clinical epidemiology and simulation afford fellows ample opportunity to improve their research skills. The fellow will complete at least one project suitable for peer-reviewed publication/presentation during the fellowship. It is expected that the fellow will be certified in the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Skills (FLS) program by the end of the year.
